    Union Cartes-de-Visite: John Baillie McIntosh, Alexander McDowell McCook, Samuel Mc Conihe, John Alexander McClernand, George B. McClellan, Daniel C. McCallum, Irvin McDowell and George Archibald McCall. Eight (8) cartes including an unmarked John Baillie McIntosh (1819-1888); Alexander McDowell McCook (1831-1903) by Brady's National Portrait Gallery; Samuel Mc Conihe (1837-1897) by R. W. Addis, Washington, D.C.; John Alexander McClernand (1812-1890) by J. E. McClees, Philadelphia; an unmarked George B. McClellan (1826-1885); Daniel C. McCallum (1815-1878) by Brady's National Portrait Gallery; Irvin McDowell (1818-1885) by E & H.T. Anthony, New York, from a negative from Brady's National Portrait Gallery; and George Archibald McCall (1802-1868) by Anthony, New York, from a negative from Brady's National Portrait Gallery. McCall, a West Point graduate, veteran of the Mexican and Seminole Wars, was Major General of Pennsylvania Volunteers. His claim to fame was forming the advance of Porter's V Corps against A. P. Hill's Confederates across the Chickahominy. He was taken prisoner at Glendale (Frayser's Farm) and briefly confined at Libby Prison. McCallum, a Scotsman, was Director and General Manager of the U. S. Military Railroads. McClernand was a law colleague of Abraham Lincoln in Springfield, career Democratic politician, who crossed swords with Grant on numerous occasions, to his detriment. McConihe served with the 93rd Regiment New York Infantry and was wounded at the Wilderness. He also fought at Seven Days, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. McCook, one of the famous "Fighting McCooks" of Ohio, fought at Shiloh, Perryville, Stone's River and Chickamauga. He commanded the XX Corps at that battle. Their rout and the ensuing criticism leveled at McCook pretty much ended his military career. McIntosh was a Colonel of the 3rd Pennsylvania Cavalry. He fought at South Mountain, Antietam, the Peninsula, Kelly's Ford, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, where he played a key role in preventing forces of J. E. B. Stuart striking the Union right. From the collection of Dr. Michael Krane.
